These pictures are stragglers that I somehow left off my “May little things” post back HERE, so here’s a little “part 2.”
After we got back from the mountains while Dave’s brother and family were in town my sis-in-law hosted a baby shower for the first great-grandchild.
Wa-hoo! These two (the oldest grandchild and his wife) are going to be exceptional parents. They have probably researched more on babies than anyone I know and their excitement is so contagious.
My sis-in-law Kara did all the fabulous decorations and planned out the food (wish I had a pic. of the crepe bar…much better detail and pictures over HERE on her blog) and Angela hosted. Loved that our girls were all invited to attend, they loved it.
For our game Kara set out a tray laden with all kinds of baby paraphernalia. We got to study it for a little bit and then she took it away and we had to write down as many items as we could remember.
Some (unlike me) got a perfect score and the girls were all delighted.
Then we divided into two teams and whichever team came up with the most songs that had the word “baby” in them won.
I’m pretty sure we won that one.
(I actually have no idea but saying that makes me feel better since I failed so miserably with the baby-items-on-the-tray-test….HA!)
Virginia (the grandma-to-be) asked Lucy to be the gift recorder for Kathryn. We all loved how she spelled everything out…especially #12 which translated says “monitor — Virginia.”
Oh I sure love that little writer!
The whole crew:
Yep, still need those fingers on there.
In May, every time I walked into my kitchen I was greeted by all these graduates on my fridge:
They are all darling but I’m a little extra endeared to this one:
Elle and I did a little shopping to get her ready for her big trip:
She had a few late-night good-byers:
And then we were off onto our grand NYC-Elle-en-route-to-London adventure.
I’m not sure Elle ever wants to come home she is soaking up that place with so much vigor! So glad she is there and learning all she’s learning but we’re getting pretty ready to hug her up in a week!
